Smartology and SMX Working Together
Smartology are delighted to announce a new partnership with the Singapore Media Exchange (SMX). This will bring quality publishers to clients in the APAC region, helping expand their global reach.
First announced in August 2017 and live in May this year, SMX is a digital alliance between two of Singapore’s premium publishers – Mediacorp and Singapore Press Holdings. It promises to give programmatic buyers a premium, brand-safe alternative in the region.
Hari Shankar, SMX CEO commented:
“Delivering premium audiences via programmatic transactions at scale via highly brand-safe, premium content environments in a unified, transparent platform is the promise that SMX brings to buyers. Our partnership with Smartology is not only in line with the our core philosophy but also reinforces it via bringing superior context to content and data”.
Smartology will initially run campaigns on both Business Times and Straits Times sites, with a view to bring more publishers and clients on board shortly. Our partnership with SMX started with a successful content amplification campaign for Pimco – the US based, investment management firm.
Commenting on the new initiative Eileen Soh, Managing Director APAC, said
“Being able to offer our clients access to inventory with Smartology’s proprietary semantic and brand safety tech, layered on market leading sites in Singapore with SMX is a real positive for us and we look forward to working with more leading local publishers in the APAC alliance”

Using machine- learning and NLP, it semantically profiles content from both the media owner and the advertiser and builds a model of the significant concepts within it. These concepts are weighted and organised into content profiles which are used by the SmartMatch system to select the most relevant content from the advertiser, to display alongside any given article on the media owner’s website in real-time.
Smartology’s media owner partners include, Bloomberg, CNN, NY Times, CNBC, The Economist, WSJ, the Financial Times, Reuters and The Wall Street Journal. It counts over 100 global brands, such as Blackrock, Mishcon de Reya, Credit Suisse and Swiss Re, as clients.
